Lofton Could be a Surprise for LSU


Visitors: 100

Chris Lofton, the Tennessee guard may not see much action on Tuesday against LSU after missing two weeks of games with a sprained ankle. Since January 20th, the day he got injured, the Southeastern Conference's leading scorer has missed four games against South Carolina. He has been listed as doubtful for each game, and while he dressed for the last two, Pearl said he would be available for emergencies only.

Chris Lofton, is going to try and play who knows how much he'll play and how effective is he going to be. Lofton, only a junior, is averaging 21.5 points. He missed games against Mississippi, Kentucky, Georgia and Florida. The Volunteers (15-8, 3-5) lost three of those games, beating only Georgia.

John Brady LSU's coach is preparing for Lofton to play. It is almost certain that Tenesse will shoot him out last minute as a surprise. So LSU is going to have to pay attention to him and guard him and put their best defender on him and give a lot of help off some screens and hopefully from the layoff he won't be as sharp.

It is common knowledge that Lofton could struggle to change directions on defense, and he may be slower driving to the basket or running on fast breaks. Chris struggled last year against at LSU, a loss for Tennessee. He was held to a season-low two points on 1-of-7 shooting from the field. So if we analyze it makes it a really tough game for Lofton to come back to.
